Section Closures

The Royal Gorge is closed to commercial trips when the water level is 3,200 CFS or above, The Numbers section is closed to commercial trips when flows are 2,400 CFS or above. Browns Canyon and Bighorn Sheep Canyon are always open, they become bigger and many of the class III rapids become IV or V at high water! So even if the section you planned on doing is closed, we have a once in a lifetime alternative trip that can at times rival the more “difficult” sections. We also have sections we can utilize as an alternative to the beginner and intermediate sections to still offer class III trips.
